The Effective Executive – Peter Drucker

Peter Drucker reminds us that the measure of an executive is the ability to “get the right things done.” This often includes doing what other people have overlooked as well as avoiding unproductive actions. Drucker identifies five essential practices for successful executives:

  • Managing time
  • Choosing what to contribute to the organization
  • Knowing where and how to mobilize strength for best effect
  • Setting the right priorities
  • Knitting all of them together with effective decision-making
